It seems to be a recurring theme at Blogging Conference tables – I’m going to step back. I am going to re-prioritize my time, I am going to be more present for my family and spend less time online. At least this is how I often feel after conferences, and BlissDom was no different.
I had such a fabulous time. Seeing old friends, making new ones, and strengthening my resolve that this is what I love to do. But, just because this is what I love to do doesn’t mean that I can spend all my extra time on it.
I have been feeling like my writing has been really lacking lately. There is so much I want to say and I just can’t get it out. I want to fall in love with writing again and am trying. One of the sessions I went to was taught by Jeff Goins – how to fall in love with writing again – oh I needed this one. He advised to write everyday, practice. I don’t know why we don’t think to do this, we wouldn’t expect to do anything else well without practicing, why would this craft of writing be any different?
I came away from BlissDom with these goals
- Write Everyday
- Get up early to write – 5 am is my friend
- Tell my story
- Make myself and my hobbies a priority
- Create my life plan
I am going to write dangerously, fiercely and create to fill my soul. I am going to feed my soul so I can in turn feed the souls of my little people who need so much.
There is so much more, but time is lacking and I just had to write and get this all out there today.
If you went to BlissDom, what did you come away with? What did you learn? What new goal did you set for yourself?
